The Story of Hunger and Hope

nationalGeographic_logo

This Your Shot assignment will be unlike any of the others we have run thus far. It will push you out of your comfort zones as photographers. It will force you to tackle an important issue and document what is happening in your very own community. You will be asked to follow many of the principles that guide photojournalists out in the field, such as showing respect for your subjects by talking with them and learning their stories before taking their pictures. In other words, get intimate with your subjects so that you can better show what’s really happening in their lives.

This assignment is about the story of hunger and hope. It is not about farming or agriculture or homelessness. It is about the people who suffer from hunger, as well as the people who help them survive it. It’s about realizing that hunger affects people from all races and all ages—and from every corner of the globe. Hunger doesn’t care if you’re from the wealthiest nation in the world or the poorest. It’s about understanding that a person’s situation can change at any time, and that often they have no control over it. It’s about realizing that together, we can overcome almost anything. For more information, view the “Editor’s Update” tab below.

[editorial note: we do realize that this is a not a contest where prizes can be won. However, we hope that you will have a look and help creating awareness. Happy Thanksgiving!]
